Poetry by Jess Morton: “Sunset”
None see how dawn's light wakes.
The clouds wrap ruddy blankets round them.
Too soon to rise.
And the day seems inexhaustible.
Blue and storm rework the light.
Excitement waits in each part.
Yet, at the end, the best is found
in the setting of the clouded Sun.
Its flush of lush color stuns the eye.
Nothing but few words will do here.
The rainbow has made this time its own,
and no hour could be more beautiful.
Think back to the last time evening's hues
tumbled into recognition, swept the eye.
There is the balance of our world.
Only in the hand that chases down
each minute toward some later hour
do we know beginnings from the end.
